View Full Version : Retinette or Retina factory repair manual

03-15-2011, 12:59
Hi everyone!
I have a Kodak 1A Retinette gift from my father.
Not used for over 20 years and I want to do a CLA to bring it as new as it deserves to be.
Sorry for my bad English ...
I've been looking for days without success so far, the service manual of the camera to help me in the task.
The only thing I have found is the parts list. It is very useful but insufficient for a newbie like me.
"Could you help me find it?
If there is no factory repair manual for Retinette I think maybe I could serve the factory repair manual for Retina that complemented with a list of parts that I have the Retinette. Especially in lubrication issue which is what most concerns me.
Kind regards and thank you very much.

G'day All,

You can find a guide to stripping down and cleaning the Pronto and Vero shutter on the Retinette 1A here.


Or find the link on my homepage

Hello Chris,
first of all thank you very much for answering.
Already knew your site, very interesting and very educational.
I have read carefully these days.
Unfortunately the link on the repair retinette shutter is down.
A greeting and thanks again for the help
